July 9: Saint Veronica Giuliani

St. Veronica Giuliani
History
Even when she was only three years old, Saint Veronica would give up her own clothing if she saw a poor child in the street who needed what she had. Veronica entered the religious life when she was only 17 years old. After 20 years of pursuing holiness, she started to see visions of heaven. Even so, she seemed like just an ordinary nun, the way she worked for the poor and instructed the new sisters. 

Activity
Did you know that there are children very close to where you live who don’t have proper clothing? There are children who don’t have enough clothing or shoes or clothing all over the world. Today, choose one of your own articles of clothing to take to a homeless shelter or other ministry that helps poor people.

Saint Veronica Giuliani, pray for us!
